Ok i have attached two images to this message, First i would like u to check that out to get a brief idea.
As you can see from the image named "before" i have a cisco 6500 Switch, a ASA 5510, and a link load balancer for load balancing between two links configured as Active/standby with VRRP.
1. I have a default route configured on the Cisco 6500 routing all traffic to the firewall inside interface through an L3 interface configured on the Switch.
2. Default route on the ASA routing all traffic to the Radware.
So now comes the actual Scenario.
Checkout the Image named " After"
Yes, I am planning to configure Active/Active failover. I know all the disadvantages and i am happy i dont require any of the "can't do's" mentioned
Now in the Active/active failover i have seen something like VLANS configured on the ASA.
- My main doubt is where will i route all the traffic on the switch to, I'll now have 2 gateway addresses for two different groups configured on the ASA.
And should i trunk between the Firewall and the l2 switches used in between.
2nd thing what about the outside part, what will the reverse route on the radware be , will it be reverse route to 2 different Ip's for the same inside network
And also do i need trunking on the ASA outside as well, Im not sure the radware supports Sub-interfaces and VLAn tags, I am sure that i can use 2 ip addresses on a single interface of the radware though.
thats not required probably
After this lengthy story, if someone understood something please try to clarify my big and almost stupid doubts.
And i am keen on the Active/active config, please dont try to convince me suggesting Active/standby unless all the above mentioned is completely impossible.
Thankyou very much
